Kumho Road Venture Tires

Well, I bought a new set of Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61 tires today. Anyone else tried these?

Not to quarterback you but it's always better to check these things out on the forum before you buy, unless you were going to buy anyway. They look like regular street tires if that's what you're going for, even though the wheels they're mounted on don't. I'm no tire person and never heard of them so hopefully someone with more experience will be brutally honest with you.

Well I have researched them and about 30 other tires. For the price I decided to go with these. I was just wondering if anyone else has tried them.

What lead you to decide on them? There are better street tires available if rain or snow is a concern.

I'm afraid you may have more to worry about than additional weight for your jeep handling in snow-

I can't immagine them providing any useful traction in snow, without dropping them to 5/8 psi-then (if they're "load range" D), they might be OK-

Really? They are rated with the industry standard mountian snow symbol and rate higher than BFG's in both deep snow and light snow. Hopefully thats correct. They are rated load range C. 6ply tire.

Mountain Snow symbol? I thought it stood for mud and snow?

I'll let you know if they are correct. Soon rather than later I'm sure.

Did you look at the Goodyear Silent Armor? Probably the highest rated tire for snow other than Blizaks.

I have kumho MT's and they are bomb- diggity. They dig through the snow, dirt, and mud, and still ride well with minimal noise. Overall they are quite durable and have lasted a long time. Kumho makes good tires.

Yeah, these cost way less and were rated just as good. One person claimed they went through 15 inches of snow with no problems.

These are not just street tires they are classified as on/off road tires. With a 6 year 60000 mile warranty. I wont be doing any serious off roading with my Jeep, just some trails. That picture does not do the tire justice imo. H3ll I could be wrong about them though.

I've heard nothing but good things about them. I had a set on a small Suzuki car I once owned and I was able to drive in all types of bad weather.

Surprisingly when I was looking around the Firestone Destination A/T Tires got some of the highest rating by not only companies that review tires but the customers that have bought them in the past and were very cost competitive. Didn't get them because I was wanting a more aggressive tire but gave it serious thought and if I wanted a AT I think I would get these.
